This feature allows fast uploading and easy web page design for your web site through any web browser. Clicking on your “Web FTP” button will bring up a page with a variety of different features.

To upload a file, type the path of the file into the empty “local file name” field box at the bottom of your screen or push “Browse” to search for the file on your computer. Then, enter the file name into the “remote file name” box.  Pushing the “Upload” button will FTP the file to our servers. Once the file has been uploaded, the file name, size, and “date last updated” will appear on the list.

A new HTML page can be created by clicking “New”.

To modify a current HTML page in your list, simply click the box to the left of the page you would like to change, and click “Edit”. Clicking on the file name itself will bring the file up in an un-editable format, showing you how a visitor to your site will view it.

Renaming a file is just a matter of clicking the box to the left of the file and then clicking the “Rename” button.

Deleting, copying, and moving files is done in the same manner, by clicking the box to the left of the file and then selecting the appropriate feature.

The “MkDir” feature (also known as “make directory”) will create a new directory or folder for certain documents. Please note that you should create new directories within your htdocs directory.

At the top of the page is a drop down menu that can sort which files are viewed on the FTP page. For instance, if you are interested in only seeing the HTML pages you have on uploading to your web site, you could use the menu to select “HTML” and click “Refresh”. The list will then only show all of your current HTML files, eliminating images and other files from the list.  To get back to the full view, use the menu to select “all”.

The “Permissions” feature allows you to change the settings to read, write, or execute only for world users. Only experienced webmasters or persons knowledgeable in HTML should use this feature. Per-directory protection can be setup by clicking the “Protection” button at the top of the page that you would like to protect. You must also select the user (s) that should be allowed access to the protected directory or folder by highlighting their username. To disable a user’s protection access, simply re-select the users that should have access, and click “Update”. To disengage protection for the directory, click “Remove Protection”. *Note: Before protecting directories you must first add allowed users in the Password Protect Documents section.
